Hermann Nitsch at Deep Space LIVE
Thursday, October 10, 2013 / Ars Electronica Center / 8-9 PM
(Linz, October 7, 2013) Hermann Nitsch, one of the most important contemporary artists, will make a live guest appearance at the Ars Electronica Center on Thursday, October 10, 2013. A co-founder of Viennese Actionism, Hermann Nitsch’s images and actions have been creating uproars for decades. He’ll present some of his works at the next Deep Space LIVE, where jumbo-format, high-definition projections will reveal structures and details that are not discernible by the naked eye.
Hermann Nitsch was born in 1938 in Vienna. He lives and works in Schloss Prinzendorf in the Province of Lower Austria. Nitsch is a co-founder of Viennese Actionism and one of the most important contemporary artists. The “Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries” is central to his oeuvre. His works are on display in Nitsch museums in Mistelbach and Naples, Italy, and in the foremost museums and galleries worldwide.
A visit to Deep Space is a truly unforgettable experience. It’s quipped with a total of eight 1080p high-definition and active stereo-capable Barco Galaxy NH12 projectors that can display 16×9-meter, crystal-clear images on the walls and floor. Whether you’re into great works from the history of art, space travel, journeys of discovery in the nanoworld, or a 3D South Sea island for kids, there are countless realms to discover in Deep Space.
